Climate scientist and science communicator Michael Mann will discuss his latest book, The New Climate War: The Fight to Take Back Our Planet, on Wednesday, May 4 at Penn State Great Valley.

The New Climate War shows how fossil fuel companies have waged a 30-year campaign to deflect responsibility and delay action on climate change and offers a battle plan for how we can save the planet. Books will be available for purchase and signing at the event.

He has received many honors and awards, including the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration’s outstanding publication award in 2002 and selection by Scientific American as one of the 50 leading visionaries in science and technology in 2002.

Additionally, he contributed, with other Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change authors, to the award of the 2007 Nobel Peace Prize. He is the author of numerous books and lives in State College.
